General Mchrystal got into trouble for making undermining comments. I wonder if he's bitter and if he will write a book that talks about the inner workings of the military. I wonder if he will take interviews on some sleazy talk shows now that he is out of work.

I see a book, interviews on every major Fox News show, maybe a couple on CNN, and token appearances on MSNBC before taking a position on the board of Haliburton.

 I guess it depends. I wouldn't go as far as Haliburton though - doubt if that entourage would accept him.

maybe you're right, assuming he's cooperative and stays cool.

Did they just remove him from his command or force him to retire?

so far just fired him from what i heard.  but he's done, he wont hold a decent command again.  he will probably retire.

"retire" for a general officer means you retain full pay and allowances, you just dont work.

fire could mean either.

Makes sense because the ny times states he was "dismissed from command".
